Before Executive Order 9066

These are all the Japanese American children attending Alisal Grammar School just before the evacuation. Alisal is a school district just east of center city Salinas. The school was located at Del Monte Ave & Williams Road.  This photo was especially requested by E. L. Low, school principal.

Japanese Americans children were sent to Salinas Assembly Center, then to Poston, Arizona. This photo taken just before entering the Salinas Assembly Center in April 1942 and shipped to Poston, Arizona via train on July 4, 1942. This photo (56 JAs) appeared in the 1942 Alisal Union School Yearbook.
